The First-Year Eagles Peer Mentorship Program is designed to assist incoming students in making a successful transition in and outside of the classroom. Highly qualified peer mentors will be placed in each FYE (First-Year Experience) class. Mentors will support first-year students in their academics, assist them in locating resources, and encourage them to become involved on-campus and take pride in being a Golden Eagle. Mentors have not only experienced their first year and all of the challenges that come with it, such as: feeling home sick, changing or developing study habits, and more, they will also go through peer mentorship training to be better prepared to support their mentees.
Peer mentors will:
Be a positive role model for their mentees and their peers.
Lead the way to academic and social success.
Provide encouragement, support, and advice.
The application for the 2020-2021 school year is due by Sunday, May 10 at 11:59 p.m. CDT. To apply, you will need to upload a resume and cover letter and include the names and emails of two professional references.
